SI Units
You should know about the SI units of measurement and mass - here is an explanation :
The Système International d'Unités (SI), is the list of units which measurements are based on in the metric system and which are used by scientists to have a standard when carrying out experiments.

For example the basic unit of length that is used is metres (m), time is measured in seconds (s), mass has a base unit of kilograms (kg), thermodynamic temperature is measured in kelvins (K),  amount of substance is taken as the mole (mol).

This video may help you to change units :
